The Gods of Talmenor

The gods of Talmenor include philosophies given name as well as powerful once-mortals. Most gods are very mysterious and do not interact with the peoples of Talmenor directly, even through prayer; when a mage casts a divine spell, they are instead channeling energy from the god’s Sphere of influence. Not all gods are worshipped in all parts of the world, though most recognize the gods listed below.

Carro, the Paladin God

Alignment: Lawful Good
Favored Weapon: Sword

Spheres: the Light, healing, valor, protection, law and order, good

Call your faith what you like; when you defend another selflessly, you are in fact serving Carro, no matter what side you say you’re on!

Professor Cornelius Hawthorne

Jarilon, God of Storms

Alignment: True Neutral
Favored Weapon: Scythe or Sickle

Spheres: storms, the sea, the sky, shelter, water, wind

There was meaning to that storm, to all its fury and healing rain, that I could not find in the rest of my wretched life.

Sirith the Nathssysn

Lunaria the Shape Shifter

Alignment: Chaotic Good
Favored Weapon: Bow

Spheres: nature, trickery, shapeshifters, druidic magic

They say the tree giggles when you trip over its root.

Mamea the Mother Goddess

Alignment: Neutral Good
Favored Weapon: Spear

Spheres: nature, fertility, community, protection of home and hearth, family bonds

Every great warrior has a woman behind him. You might not see her, but her presence is felt through the warrior’s conviction and vibrant health. That is who Mamea is: the hidden strength, the healing touch, the inspiration of life.

High Priestess of the Nulst Empire

Merrana, Goddess of the Arts

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Favored Weapon: Whip or Sling

Spheres: beauty, creativity, music, freedom, travel

What is music if it stays only on one note? If it sounds once, long and fading, never again, like the dull stones of the grave? We Merran follow the moons and the tide and the swaying of grass-heads in the wind, not the still, painted figures in your holy books who may hear much but say nothing of note.

Sar’Kata the Trickster

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Favored Weapon: Rapier or Scimitar

Spheres: trickery, pranks, luck, chaos, rebellion, artistry

In these courts, the only person permitted to speak truth with no consequence is my jester.

Queen Caitlin of Tarith

Seri-Jon, God of Prophecy

Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Favored Weapon: Staff

Spheres: the stars, knowledge, prophecy, terrible omens

Ware Seri-Jon’s eye upon you. Once He sees you, your fate is sealed.

Shen-Bahan, God of Peace and Artifice

Alignment: Lawful Good
Favored Weapon: Crossbow or Gun

Spheres: the Light, ultimate good, philosophy, law and order, progress, artifice

Love the sinners, but hate their sins. Everyone has a spark of the divine Shen-Bahan inside them. It is only through being held accountable to His law that such a spark can grow into the fire of faith.

Keelon Sunwalker of the Ice Plains

Sirillon, God of Fire and the Sun

Alignment: True Neutral
Favored Weapon: Mace

Spheres: fire, the sun, justice, retribution, battle

Is Sirillon good or bad? Well, now, that depends on if you live on the tundra or in the desert, now doesn’t it?

Tymalt, the Warmonger

Vornyrr the Betrayer

Talmenor, the World Soul

Alignment: True Neutral
Favored Weapon: Axe

How can the earth be a god? Does He think it’s offensive that I walk on Him and scrape Him off on my rug?
